Cookies

Happy Friday, everyone!

Yesterday was filled with so much cooking and baking in preparation for Christmas. Can you believe it’s less than a week away?

I’ve really been slacking off this year in the baking area this year. I’ve attempted to make amends, though I’m not sure this is good enough.

Thus far I’ve made snowballs, thumbprints, gingerbread, the dough for some lovely jam filled cookies, and a gingerbread house which I’m so excited to put together and decorate!

Then there was of course the white chocolate mint fudge, eggnog white hot chocolate, and… oh, who am I kidding? I don’t believe there was anything besides those. Oh, yes there was. I also made some eggnog fudge.

Here’s what I spent my Thursday on.

Snowballs

My husband so meticulously lined up the little hugs. He's much more organized than I am, I just threw  mine in a pile.

It’s An I Don’t Know What

Happy Thursday, Everyone! I hope you’re getting as excited for Christmas as I am!

I’m much further behind in my Christmas preparation than I usually am, though our home is filled with Christmas music and talk of decorating and baking. I have to start actually working on it, there are only three weeks until Christmas!

Some of our decorating is done, but we have yet to get a tree. I’m a big stickler for having a real tree, and the ones we looked at yesterday looked pretty sad. I’m sure we could have dressed them up a bit, but I have a difficult time with the idea of spending money for an already dead looking tree.

So I get to spend tomorrow out Christmas shopping and looking for a tree!

Anyway, today I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and wanted something nice and warm to contrast with the cold outside. So I decided to make something… I’m not entirely sure what to call it, but it tastes good! That’s what really matters anyway, right?

I just threw some stuff in a pan. Rice, a can of tomatoes (I hate using the canned ones, but it’s all I had), jalapenos, brussel sprouts, margarita mix, pepper, garlic and onion powder, oregano and a bit of pink salt. Then I topped it off with some shredded cheese! Yum!

I hope you’re staying warm and cozy on this chilly December day. Have you gotten a Christmas tree yet, or do you like to wait a little longer?

I’d love to hear from you! Have a wonderful day!
